Polyoxometalate-functionalized macroporous microspheres for selective separation/enrichment of glycoproteins†
Glycoproteins always participate in various biological processes. Selective separation and enrichment of glycoproteins are of great significance for the research of pathogenesis. Herein, macroporous polymer microspheres were fabricated, and further functionalized by polyoxometalate. Thus, a simple, efficient and highly selective approach was constructed for glycoprotein enrichment from a complex matrix. The as-prepared material shows promise as a potential adsorbent in bio-separation and downstream clinical applications.
